The Great Commandment

Ancient Temple postings begin on Monday.

I love this poem written by my dear friend Lisa. It was inspired by her ponderings on the first and great commandment.

I had to learn to love the Lord –
My will fought long His great command.
Though I saw merit in His word,
I felt abandoned by His hand.

My pouting soul, by grace, is free;
For Truth revealed Love’s selfless length
And spoke that Christ is loving me
With all His heart, might, mind, and strength.

  1. What a thought provoking, poem. I'll have to ponder as well over its great significance. Thanks Donna and Lisa.

  2. Btw, I want to pass on Lisa's poem. Can I get her permission?

  3. Permission granted to share poem.
